After Titanic in 1997, many wondered how James Cameron would ever try to top that spectacle. Well, its taken 12 years, but he most certainly has with Avatar, which has gone on to win three Academy Awards as well as winning the Golden Globe Awards for Best Picture and Best Director. It has also become the most successful movie of all time, overtaking Titanic, ironically.

The basic plot is certainly nothing that hasn't been done before, but so what, almost any movie has a plot that's a retread of another plot before it. But what really sets this movie apart from anything seen before is the amazing visuals.

The astounding special effects seem visceral and extremely life-like. The hanging mountains, the mysterious and abundant creatures (some truly nasty animals that were conjured up from imagination) and even the indigenous Na'Vi tribe... all marvels of CGI. All the Na'Vi characters were filmed via motion-capture computer technology, so when taken all into account, it's probably fair to say that 80% of this film is digitally rendered. And the most amazing thing? You'd never be able to tell the difference.

The movie is almost 3 hours long, but it's so exciting and action-packed and a delight on the senses that it's never noticeable. The acting was more than adequate, with Sigourney Weaver, Zoe Saldanha and Stephen Lang probably the standouts.

The final battle scene is exciting and a sight to behold. And with this technological marvel, James Cameron has once again proved himself to be the "King Of The World"! A visual masterpiece! (5 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)

The special edition re-release of the biggest movie of all time, featuring 15 extra minutes and an alternative opening, and 2 discs of bonus features.

Jake Sully, a paraplegic war veteran who is selected to participate in the Avatar programme, in which genetically-engineered human beings are sent to explore a small moon called Pandora.

There, the indigenous Navi tribe of three-metre-high, human-like beings have long lived a peaceful existence in harmony with their plant-covered world, despite their fearsome warrior skills. And when Jake meets Navi princess Neytiri, he falls in love with her and becomes integrated into her clan - little knowing that his mission on Pandora has a far more sinister aim than he realised.

Before long, Jake is caught up in an epic battle that could decide the fate of an entire world.

Review This Product

Wed, 3 Aug 2011 | Review by: Micky B

Apart from the blue-skinned humanoid's resemblance to the principal characters of Universal's black-and-white horror feature, THE REPTILE, back in the 1960s: I have nothing but the highest praise for this, James Cameron's latest first-class cinemaric achievement! And a bonus for the James Horner musical score; the third successful collaberation between the two James's!!!
